Question about Panasonic Navigon 5100
Most GPS receivers are not designed to be used for tracking. The GPS receives signals from Global Positioning Satellites and then uses those signals to calculate its current location, which it displays on the screen. However that data is not normally sent anywhere externally so there is no way for a remote user to determine where the GPS is.. Thus you cannot use a computer or any other device to track the GPS.
The Navigon 5100 appears to be no exception.
Without pairing the GPS with an external communications device (cell phone, two-way radio, laptop with a WiFi connection, etc.) the GPS lacks the ability to transmit its location reports to any external source. There certainly are ways that a GPS can be used with an external communications device as a tracker, but most GPS receivers do not have this capability out of the box.
